It is an open secret the real estate market is struggling and it doesn’t appear like people have the ability to buy homes and other properties anymore. If you are selling your home, it means that you must know how to fix your price. Thankfully, home staging Sydney comes in to assist in this difficult task. Proper home staging involves obvious steps such as uncluttering, fixing and cleaning but it goes beyond that.
On average, a home buyer will have between 25 and 50 homes to choose from at every one time. On a typical day a buyer will visit between 7 and 10 homes and this alone is enough to confuse a buyer. As the buyer continues to visit the homes, they will slowly begin to distinguish different home characteristics. This is where property staging Sydney will make a difference.
When the prospective buyer sits down at the end of the day to compare notes, you can be sure that some of the descriptions they will use many not be flattering at all. Potential buyers have been heard to describe homes as “the gecko home” that home with nasty bathroom, the home with brown counters, the one with blue neon lights etc. Home staging Sydney allows you to deliberately give a prospective buyer something more memorable.
Fresh paint: An experienced real estate stylist will advise you to have the entire house painted in the same color as this will make the home appear more spacious. You may want to hire an expert to trim the ceiling. People will very quickly notice any painted woodwork or ceilings.
Go chic: Proper home staging Sydney may involve investing in a few accessories that could accentuate the home. You may want to include some fluffy bathroom towels and mats to warm up the bathroom. Don’t forget to include some color coordinated rugs in your foyer in order to give a good first impression.
Cush-up the Carpet: If you need to replace the carpet, a good real estate stylist will advise against using a cheap replacement. In most cases the buyer will remove their shoes as they walk through a carpeted home in their feet and they will definitely tell the difference.
Make it match: You can easily give a feel of updated furniture by introducing some quick and affordable slipcovers. Spend a little cash to dispose of any old blankets and in their place put in some nice pillows.
Replace handles and knobs: They may not be too expensive but when you are doing home staging you can only ignore them and blame yourself. Outdated or missing handles and dirty or worm out switch plates will send the wrong message to a prospective buyer. Your real estate stylist will recommend a replacement with new and shiny items that will say you pay attention to details.
